LAS VEGAS (AP) — Bail is set at $200,000 for a 67-year-old woman accused of plotting to kill Las Vegas police to advance an anti-authority sovereign citizens movement.

Court officials say Devon Campbell Newman said nothing during a bail hearing Monday before Justice of the Peace Conrad Hafen.

Newman’s court-appointed lawyer, Carl Arnold, declined comment about the case.

Newman told the judge Friday that she didn’t hurt anyone and wants to be freed pending a Sept. 9 preliminary hearing.

Newman and co-defendant David Allen Brutsche also told the judge Friday that they don’t recognize his authority to keep them in jail.

Bail was set at $600,000 for the 42-year-old Brutsche.

Police say an undercover officer spent four months with Brutsche and Newman, collecting evidence of what authorities are calling a domestic terror operation.
